The impressive pink Pig lantern by Qian Jian Hua (Justin) first lit up the western boardwalk of the Sydney Opera House as the hero of last year’s celebration of the Year of The Pig.

Delicate and airy appearance, a deconstructed three-dimensional grid has been carved out to form an abstract silhouette of a pig.

About the artist Qian Jian Hua was born in Nanjing and came to Australia in 1991 as a visiting scholar. He now lives and works in Sydney and his sculptures have been displayed in many major exhibitions in Australia.

About the zodiac animal The zodiac animal of the Pig is said to be honourable, philanthropic and optimistic. The Pig can be incredibly focused and achieve great things.
